We found out last week, when one of our Leadership Groups visited the Foundling Museum: they are/were all foundlings (fostered, adopted, orphaned, or a ward).

Some of the strongest and most memorable people from all corners of the world, as well as many of the most loved fictional characters of all time, had a tough start to life.

This got me thinking, (and not for the first time), about nature v nurture, fortune v adversity, and perhaps most of all, the extent to which luck plays a part in our lives.

And then I heard this quote: “The harder I work, the easier it is for luck to find me.”

My sense is that regardless of the start in life, the common denominator for success in any/every field, is hard work – properly hard work.
